Universal Lost a Copyright Fight with this Charming Smiths-Peanuts Mashup Tumblr | Ethical Sharing | Scoop.it
Turns out Morrissey is not a “fun vampire” after all.
Crystal Coleman's insight:

While there's no legal precedent set by this case (since it didn't go to court), it's definitely an example that will be cited when artists go to bat for transformative uses of their work that the labels may not like. You go, Morrissey.... four for you, Morrissey!

Vine, hip-hop and the future of video sharing: old rap songs and new copyright rules

Vine, hip-hop and the future of video sharing: old rap songs and new copyright rules | Ethical Sharing | Scoop.it
Is there a reason Vine videos are exactly six seconds long? Yes, and it has a lot to do with high profile court cases that almost destroyed hip hop music.
Crystal Coleman's insight:

There's no specific "six-second rule," but this is still a good read about Mash Up Culture and Copyright/Fair Use.
